    I have been doing taxidermy now for a little while. I haven't got to do a turkey yet but hope to soon. The bondo thing is a cool trick. It even works for when you mount the entire bird. You cut your tail off close to the end bondo the same way but then you add a little more after the first coat dries and then make a "U" shaped wire and bondo that onto the same place. Once that dries and the bird is mounted you simply plug the wire into the body and you now have a full mount. If you ever make it this way you should stop by. I am fully up and running. I have done a couple of birds for Brody and his boy. I don't have a website yet but my company name is K&M Taxidermy. Next time I see you I'll get you a business card.

    Goob,

    Is it worth checking out Dubois for whitetails?

    Have you ever seen any whitetail near Evanston/Woodruff? Last night I drove over to a friend's house by the Crawfords and saw 3 whitetails out with the muleys. Pretty neat to see those!

    the river that feeds the Malheur is the donner and blitzen, or just blitzen. once they found the redbands, they shut it down, then reopened it to catch and release - I do not know current status. hiking up the gorge (access at last road crossing river) had great pocket water. big fish were lower down in the willow lined canal on the flats. garbage lid sized swirls. big time mosquitos. check the regs and if open, take your rod when you go birding out there.

    Just found this message. I've had some computer and internet problems and didn't get the email notice.

    I usually don't soak birds in milk; doves maybe once in awhile, cut-up rabbits and squirrels often. I think milk helps bring out some blood and milk's lactic acid helps tenderize the meat some but if the bird has been brined for awhile I don't think soaking in buttermilk later will have much affect. Got me, never done it like that.

    Are you brining or curing? We (I) often interchange the two terms but there's a big difference.

    You can add too much salt when brining and render the bird dry and tough. I like to brine overnight in lightly salted water with a "splash" of vinegar. The vinegar will draw out the blood, important if you use the duck broth for making gumbo.

    Sorry I'm so late responding.

    Hey Goob as you are the undeniable forum game cooking expert I'd like to pose a question if that's alright. Allot of guys say to brine waterfowl in a Salt or sugar & salt brine while others say to soak them in buttermilk. I've never tried the buttermilk method. I do however have several ducks that have been brining in sugar and salt for about 5 days now. I'm thinking of removing them from the brine and putting them in buttermilk for another day or so. What are your thoughts if any? any chance doing this might negatively effect the flavor? I'm planning on smoking these ducks then making a gumbo from some that was breasted and roasting a whole one that was plucked.

    Looks like Lonetree's deer testicle thread has an advertising post in it, just thought I'd let you know.

    FYI, that fish came from the Hams Fork. Amazing river of which I will speak nothing about.

    I am an industrial hygienist by trade and a Trona mine has offered me a position and we are currently just working out the start date.

    I was thinking of putting 89 as the first choice and then selecting a north east unit as the second choice and then spending some time visiting the area and knocking on doors.

    Thanks for your advice and help
